Sun protection but not as you know it.

£18.00

GREAT BARRIER sun lotion

Non-greasy, reef-friendly, broad spectrum and water-resistant – we think we’ve really hit the nail on the head with our sun lotion. This mineral and chemical sun protection hybrid protects skin in a gentle but highly effective manner, without causing any skin sensitivities or irritations. A mash-up of green algae extract to protect skin from environmental damage, coconut extracts and vitamin E to nourish and soothe skin and aloe vera and hyaluronic acid so it sinks into skin the moment you rub it in, sun protection becomes a pleasure not a chore. Available in SPF15, SPF30 and SPF50, the choice is yours.

  • Benefits

    Chemical sunscreens are often thought of as bad for skin and bad for the environment, but not ours. Using filters that are independently tested and deemed super safe for both, we’ve whisked them with mineral filters to bounce those harmful UV rays back into the atmosphere and created a sun lotion that’ll keep you protected from top to toe. A light lotion with a creamy vanilla ice cream scent, your limbs will be treated to a glug of hyaluronic acid at the same time – perfect if you’re spending time in the sun, which is notorious for drying skin out. Also great for fighting free radical damage like pollution and metal toxins using green algae extract, it’s a must for city dwellers and outdoor exercisers too.

  • Full Ingredients

    This product is freshly made in the UK using the most nutritious, sustainably sourced ingredients from across the globe.

    Our heroes:

    Green algae extract
    Algae would be in the top 10 free-radical fighting charts if there was one thanks to its high antioxidant content. An underwater superhero, it’ll do whatever it takes to keep your skin safe.

    Vitamin E
    An esteemed skin healer because of the nourishing properties vitamin E contains, it gives our sunny formula a real moisture boost.

    Coconut extracts
    Not only does the coconut help give this a delicious scent, it’s rich in fatty acids, proteins and B vitamins that keep your skin strong and resilient so it’s less vulnerable to damage from the atmosphere.

How to use

How to use

Cover your whole body thoroughly, rubbing it in and ensuring you catch all areas of skin – don’t forget the back of your neck, your ears and your feet. Reapply every two hours and if you’re going anywhere near water, apply it again as soon as you’re dry. 

I have always adored Tropic products for their beautiful formulas and noticeable results, but since they launched their new sun care products in particular... I’m OBSESSED. The range feels luxurious to use, smells great, protects me perfectly and I love that the range is ocean safe too - good for me and good for the planet. My fave!
